Cintas selects inthinc tiwiPro™ to Drive Safety and Fleet Efficiency
SALT LAKE CITY - 06/29/2011 - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, today announced that Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS), the leader in specialized business to business services, has selected inthinc tiwiPro™ to support the company's fleet safety initiative. Cintas will deploy tiwiPro across its Uniform Rental Division to monitor vehicles' fuel usage, view GPS-based trip details, and help ensure its drivers' safety via in-cab verbal alerts for speeding, seatbelt use and other aggressive driving behavior.
"Our company is based on timely deliveries and quality customer service," said Dan Braun, Senior Vice President of Value Improvement Initiatives - Operations at Cintas. "After careful scrutiny and a successful trial, we look forward to seeing firsthand how inthinc's technology will not only further ensure the safety of our employee-partners on the road, but reduce costs and increase our overall operational efficiency," he added.
With tiwiPro, Cintas will have real-time insight into fleet activity and performance through the inthinc Portal. Using integrated GPS tracking and telematics capabilities, fleet managers will be able to see, for example, where each vehicle is located, where drivers stopped, the duration of their stop, and how long it takes each driver to get from one location to another throughout the entire route. This allows Cintas to respond quickly to any emergencies and communicate any potential delays to customer sites in a timely manner. The portal will also show any safety alerts during the route such as speeding, hard braking or other risky driving behavior.
"Cintas is a well-known brand with a reputation for professionalism and high-quality service," said Pete Allen, Senior Vice President, Global Sales at inthinc. "We are proud to support their driver safety initiative and work with them to increase fuel efficiency and contribute to further reducing fleet operational costs."
